Enter the Roman Bear Pit and fight for a big win in Wild Gladiators, a 5 or 6-reel, 25-payline Pragmatic Play Slot Machine. It comes with a special 6th reel that can increase up to 10 times the winnings. Also available, expanding wilds and a bonus round of free spins. Play between £ 25p and £ 125 per spin.

Wild Gladiators is a relatively simple game when it comes to design. A Roman shield, a chariot, a tiger and a mysterious woman join the lower value. The best of the usual symbols is the Roman Emperor who will earn you 25, 50 or 400 coins if you get 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Next to the main set, you’ll see a 6th reel – it only contains multipliers and a wild bonus symbol. Find a winner and the gain is increased by the multiplier displayed on the 6th reel.

The gladiator symbol, which represents the joker, helps to increase your chances of winning. If it is positioned at the center of a reel, it will expand to make all the wild joker. The gladiator can hit center on several reels with a lot of effect, especially when combined with a high value multiplier.

Reach 5 expanding wild expanses and the 10x higher multiplier for a jackpot of 100,000 coins. Throw the super wild bonus symbol on the multiplier rolls and 5 wilds are added randomly on the next turn. These can also extend to fill the entire reel if they land in a central position. This is known as Super Wild Bonus feature.

Wild Gladiators also comes with a Free Spins feature that is triggered by landing the Colosseum scatter on reels 1, 3, and 5 on the same turn. You will then get 10 free spins. The multiplier on the reel 6 is at stake here, as are the expanding wilderness areas. An infinite number of re-triggers are possible here too.

It’s a very nice niche of Pragmatic Play. The visual and sound effects are well designed and many extras are on offer. The multiplier is a great addition – combine it with wilderness and free spins and Wild Gladiators can offer a potentially spectacular action.
